Durham police rescued two paddle boarders in distress off the Lake Ontario shoreline Thursday night.
Police were called just before 9:30 p.m. and were located by their Air-1 Helicopter and Marine Unit.
The pair were then safely transported back to shore.
A video posted to Twitter by user @DynamicVapor, appears to show a part of the incident.
In the video two women, both wearing life jackets, can been seen floating on paddle boards several hundred yards from shore as a police boat approaches.
